The weekly podcast that covers an assortment of plugins from WordPress
Their website features three of his plugins:
- Minimum Featured Image Size. Sometimes other site users upload tiny images, which causes them to display incorrectly or at low quality. This plugin forces them to upload properly sized images. It also works for custom posts, including WooCommerce galleries. Your images need to meet both the width and height requirement. If your image fails to meet these, the publish button is disabled and a warning message will be displayed.
- WooHoo Lite, WooCommerce. Martin created this so clients could customize the WooCommerce site on their own, bypassing the need for a developer to help customize the design. Many things can be changed, e.g. categories, tags, breadcrumbs, pictures, etc. Pro lets you customize emails and admin notifications, also shipping price dependent on quantity. It puts all customization in one spot instead of all over back end coding. Bypasses needing a developer for customizing.
- Visual Sitemap. This plugin lets you choose what pages are shown on the sitemap, each page’s icon and colours. The style sheets can also be edited. The icons used are from Font Awesome.

WP Compress offers multiple compression modes, secure cloud backups, image resizing and more to slash your image file sizes and speed up your website. Compress and optimize images to shrink file size, improve load times and boost page speed scores in just one click.
Since the beta in October, several things have improved based on user feedback. They have improved speeds, added automation, and made some general improvements. There are three optimization levels: Lossless (which keeps as much quality as possible), Ultra (which makes files as small as possible) and Intelligent (which tries to find a middle ground)
What makes it different:
- Ease of use
- To install: sign up, download, and enter api.
- Typically no more than 3-5 settings.
- Automation settings to make life easier
- Other compression sites charge much more. WP Compress starts at $5/mo and goes up to $15/mo.
- Compresses images at a set time (or times) daily, instead of compressing on upload which can interrupt you.
- Resizing of larger images (default setting resizes any large images to 2048 pixels or less, can be set lower)
- prevents over-compression of images, has unlimited (no time limit)restore function and backups
- Nearly everything is one-click (bulk, individual, restore, bulk restore, settings)
- Backups are saved securely in cloud in case you want to restore the images
